Dr Climent Casals-Pascual explains how the development of new tools to diagnose and manage malaria more effectively will allow us to decrease the mortality of this condition.
Dr Climent Casals-Pascual is interested in severe malaria, particularly its diagnosis and clinical management. Clinical symptoms of severe malaria are similar to those of other diseases like pneumonia and meningitis. In tropical countries, poor diagnosis often results in sub-optimal treatments. Integrating proteomic, genomic and clinical data will help us explain differences in clinical outcome in severe malaria.
